We've never been asked, but in some threads I've seen the same question regarding CG requesting info about your rigs age. Some think it unfair other think that its ok. I guess when you own the CG you can make any conditions you want. Sort of like the Class A only RV resorts.

Good morning Pallo, and yes, some campgrounds do have age restrictions. Most that do are very nice parks and probably more then I want to spend for a weeks stay. I don't know the area your in but I'd look around for a more accommodating CG. Good luck and enjoy your weekend

Being fairly new to rv'ing I haven't been to too many campgrounds to know if it's a common practice or not.I haven't run into this problem as of yet.The only reason I can think of is if it looks like a broken down piece of junk that looks like it should be in junkyard they wouldn't want "trailer trash" in their nice campground,but if it looks like new then whats the difference of the age. Did you ask them why?

WOW.... Have never heard that one. But my HOA demanded I not park my 1949 Chev in front of my house as it was "non-working, dilapidated, rusting and aesthetically not in keeping with the surroundings". I bought the car on a Friday, drove it home, parked it in my driveway next to my BMW. On Tuesday I received this letter. I was beside myself. Make a long story short I parked my car infront of the idiot board members houses every time I came home from work and walked home. During the following years I restored the car slowly and 6 years later it is a four time show winner.

Owners of campgrounds like this should be boycotted. A restored 1956 Airstream, 1975 Blue Bird or well maintained clean 1984 Winnebago Chieftan being refused a site because it's too old? What's next? How old is the driver? Oops, you are 75? Sorry you are too old to drive your 2012 42 foot $500,000 motor home in our park.

I personally would never patronize an RV park with this sort of policy. All of our rigs will be "over 10 years old" at some point. Seems like a place for snotty stuckups. Not my favorite type of people.

I have never actually seen it but have heard of it. I think the way to get around the rule is to send them a picture of you RV. If it looks good they may let you in. I think they do it to keep out the older not well taken care of RV's. It is sad but the people who own the parks do get to make the rules.

Yeah but a '74 Winnie with faded paint does not mean the owner is some sort of hillbilly lowlife trailer trash. It means it's a '74 Winnie with faded paint.

Baraff it's a 1984 and I us this as an example because my father in law is the owner. He purchased it new from the factory and has stored it in a garage/barn when not on the road. The unit has 163,000 miles on it and looks better than many 1/5 it's age. It gets waxed every year and it has been maintained better than most.

The fact there are parks that have rules like this is a joke. If a rig has obvious safety or health concerns it's understandable a park may not allow entry. To ask the year of the rig then decline to allow that rig in because it's older than circa 2000 is pathetic.

Clearly another attempt at separating the "classes". Bring back the Beverly Hillbillies.

I have been told my 1999 Tradewinds is too old on a few occasions. I ask to send a picture to get forgiven if I really need to stay there because of a rally or meeting. So far I have always gotten in, but if they refuse it's OK with me, I'll just go down the street and give the business to someone else.
